Steelheads To Retire Mylymok's #4 On Saturday
BOISE, Idaho - The Idaho Steelheads Hockey Club announced today it will retire former defenseman Jeremy Mylymok's jersey number during a first intermission ceremony at Saturday's game. Mylymok played for the Steelheads from 2000-2006.
As Captain of the Steelheads 2004 Kelly Cup Championship Team, Mylymok led the team in its first season of play in the ECHL. The popular blueliner ranks second overall in games-played for Idaho at 330 (behind Scott Burt at 403), second in penalty minutes at 894 (behind Lance Galbraith at 1,071), is tied for fourth in assists at 127, and is sixth in points at 173.
Steelheads President Eric Trapp said, "When you think about Steelheads players who have had an impact on our community, Jeremy Mylymok is at the top of that list. He continues to support the Steelheads and local youth hockey efforts, and he and his family will always be welcome members of the Idaho Steelheads family." Mylymok currently serves as Idaho IceWorld's Hockey Director.
Mylymok was voted to represent the Steelheads at the West Coast Hockey League's 2001 All-Star Game, and as the Steelheads celebrated its ten-year tenure during the 2006-07 season, Mylymok was selected to be one of two defenseman on the First All-Decade Team, voted on by fans, alumni, coaches, and media.
Cal Ingraham is the only other Steelheads player to have his jersey number retired. Ingraham played with Idaho from 1998-2002 and still holds team records for most points at 381; most goals at 175, fastest hat trick at 1:15 on 1/6/99; most goals in a game at 5 on 1/29/00; and is the only player to have three 50-goal seasons in 1998, 1999 and 2000.
Mylymok's retired jersey banner will hang next to Ingraham's retired #22 at Qwest Arena.
In addition, Steelheads players will wear #4 stickers on their helmets Saturday in honor of Mylymok, and photos of Mylymok will be handed out to the first 2,000 fans through the doors.
The Steelheads play three games this week against the Utah Grizzlies on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Tickets are available online or at the Qwest Arena Box Office. A variety of Season Ticket Plans for the 2008-09 season, with reduced pricing in some sections, are now available by calling (208) 383.0080 or visiting the team's website at www.idahosteelheads.com.
The Idaho Steelheads are the ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League's Dallas Stars.
